I don't think it's a comment on the band at all. In fact I'd bet my life on it. I think the song was written in '92 and first performed in '93 when Garcia was very plainly into the GD. There are also several stories about Garcia in the US Senate dining room excitedly describing the song to Sen. Barbara Boxer.

I think the song is purely art, describing the changing of the seasons and life's progression or something along those lines.

But yours is an interesting, all be it pessimistic, thought.
